Who doesn’t like sugar? It’s delicious, satisfying and at times works as a mood uplifter. Don’t believe us? Reflect upon it when you sit with a bowl of ice cream when down. No matter how good sugary foods feel, refined sugar is detrimental to health. It not only causes weight gain and wreaks havoc on your dental health, but it also makes you prone to diabetes and is even detrimental to cardiovascular health. Some go as far as calling it a ‘white poison’, due to the several ill effects it has on the body. But, let’s admit, knowing about the ill effects and quitting sugar altogether are two different games. What about those who identify as having a sweet tooth? Or when you have sugar cravings? Gladly, we have healthy options with which you can replace refined sugar.
